A sonar-social architecture + synchronicity: join Young Girl Reading Group 144 at ICA, Jul 21

20 July 2017

The Young Girl Reading Group 144 at London’s ICA is taking place on July 21.

The collaborative project has been running since 2013 by Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė, with this iteration part of #In_formationICA, a hashtag that explores commoning and collectivity. This reading will look at an extract from Folding Beijing written by Chinese science fiction writer Hao Jingfang.

YGRG defines itself as a “sonar-social architecture of shared curiosity and synchronicity” who aim to create a “rhizomatic network of voices, suggestions and references,” and “composed not only of particles and molecules that circulate within, but prefaces, dedications, citations, appendices, illustrations, references, notes, diagrams and thoughts which travel in reverse.”

Performers for this event include Dorota Gawęda, Eglė Kulbokaitė, Safiya LaGillé, Ellenx Tellnobody, Catherine Prieto Österberg and Ari King.
